Hey,

the problem that i am having with my computer rite now is that every 10-15 sec my computer is freezing up and then resuming. this is really annoying when watching a movie and esspecially when listening to music. This problem has always persisted since i rebooted my laptop and ever since the reboot the pc has been running much slower in games and such. I do not think this is a driver problem because i have downloaded all the dell drivers and ended up just sticking with the drivers i have from the installation cd. I do not think that this is a result of a virus because for the most part i am not connected to the internet and would appreciate any help possible.
im running windows vista home basic sp2

Have you run full scans with both your anti virus app AND with MalwareBytes?

Boot to safe mode - how do things run there?

The fact that you don't have an AV installed is worrisome. I suggest you post in the Am I Infected forum on this site.

Well I don't know how I couldve gotten a virus cause I haven't been using internet or have been connected to the internet since I reformatted my computer except to read emails and post this but now my computer won't even start in safe mode cause of a fatal error and when I try to start my computer it just restarts. I'm on my phone to write this rite now and I need help -_-

And the help I'm offering is a suggestion that you post in the Am I Infected forum on this site. Before we start looking elsewhere, let's know for sure whether or not the system is infected.

Do you have an error message you can give us?

P do not know where this was moved from so tell me is tis XP or another.
Let us see if we can get Safe mode to run.
Vista users my need to save it to the desktop first then right-click the icon and choose "Run as Administrator".

Please download and run SafeBootKeyRepair.exe.

Once it has completed, please try booting into Safe Mode. Select safe mode with Networking so you can download.

Try MBAM again.

If possible install then scan with this free AV. Click>> Avira Antivir
